Simply a stunner. In my opinion , it looks better than the LP640. Its a bit of a cliche, but it actually looks like James Bond wearing a tight tuxedo! Really muscular and big and a long hood. Back looks amazing. Ground clearance is plenty and it goes over speed bumps easily.

2 - Driving dynamics :

Didn't get to push the car , due to delhi traffic , but it sounds amazing! It pulls in any gear from any rpm I could give it and the trick valves in the exhaust open up after 4.5K RPM and it really growls after that. Steering is very responsive and light and so is the clutch and the gearbox.

3 - Comfort

Very comfortable to drive. It seems slotted , in terms of driving comfort , between the M3 and the LP640. Seats are very supportive and very very comfortable. Interior build quality is as I expected it to be.

Amazing car overall . Was stuck in Delhi traffic most of the time so I could not push it at all, but a head turner for sure and very comfortable to drive.
Wow man . Many congratulations ! That is something to look out for . 510 horses at 6500 rpm ... Would sound amazing !

So here are the pictures as requested. The M3 has got some cosmetic mods and a few performance mods as well. It has got new shoes , in the form of the P Zero's and the BBS rims , and also the standard stopping power of the Brembo's. In the interior , I added some nice M emblem pedals and a new gear knob (heavier and shorter) to compliment the short shift kit. The new bootlid will be on the M in a few days , followed by the supercharger install next month. I already have the necessary hardware to install the supercharger, but just waiting for the 1200 km service interval.

I have also tried to detail the Aston a bit and will post better pictures (on the road ones too) when I get the time. Regarding the shot of the key inserted in the key slot , note that I am not using the crystal key that is provided by aston. I was just using the spare key so as to click these pictures. The last shot shows what the primary key looks like.

WOw thanks for the wonderful photos karan. You have made my day.
The Aston looks so handsome. Love your new m3 too. The rims and the color of the car go so well together. But how about a more detailed shoot of the Aston and the Lp together . And mind me asking the speeds you were managed to touch with the aston ?
Love the "Hand Built In England" strip.
Congrats mate.

And also how is the stopping power in comparison to the lp ? Asking you this because of the carbon ceramic brakes , and did you get that option on the lp too ?

Yep, got the same brakes on the LP , but the LP ones are slightly sharper in response and bite. Touched 160kms in the Aston.
